Following their performance, an internet user took to Instiz to share their thoughts on IVE’s performance. They uploaded a post titled, “IVE just came to perform at a festival, and only Ahn Yujin was performing live.”

There, they noted how obvious it was that the group was lip-syncing while performing “ELEVEN.” They were taken aback by this, as most artists usually perform live in university music festivals.

Many were shocked at the situation and disappointed in live. People stated that it was obvious they were lip-syncing, and the fact that only one person sang live made it weirder. This caused people to speculate that they were initially intended to sing live.

Others speculated that some members did sing live, but their voices were too soft to be adequately picked up by the microphone. Some defended IVE, saying a lot of idols nowadays lip-sync for festivals or events. However, others pointed out that IVE was the only one who lip-synced during this university festival.
